What's in Our Window This Week?
What's in our window today? Cheeky animal heads by InRainbows, displayed in beautifully hand painted boxes by Handsome Vintage. Watercolour by Hattie Buckwell and Hannah Bailey, digital prints of Bristol by super talented Emily Ketteringham, alongside a striking print of Temple Meads station by Dan Parry-Jones. Peering in the corner is a handmade and stitched little cat door stopper by From Little Seeds accompanied by the most elegant and dainty cups you ever did see by Duck Ceramics, alongside attractive sturdy mugs for you morning tea by Jane Booth Ceramics! Lights and lampshades handmade by Farrar Designs and Homecrush. The shop is full of new treats!
I am slightly bewildered that we are in full swing of September. Even though it is somewhat becoming Autumn, we are still lucky enough to be enjoying the Indian Summer weather. Schools have already started and Bristol is about to be hit by an influx of students returning for the new academic year. Thankfully we are prepared on that front with beautiful accessories for your home or simply to give as a gift, perhaps as a house warming present. I was at a market at the weekend and people were already buying for stocking fillers. Is it too early to mention the ‘C’ word? If you think your creations are something that Objets needs in the shop, then we’d love to here from you for our November- December edition.
This Summer has seen many exciting changes at Objets De Desir. We have been on the scout for new talented artists from near and far to bring you the best that is to offer. We’ve been stocked up of all your Bristol favourites. To top it off we moved premises from Clifton Arcade to Boyces Avenue next to Soma and Reg the Veg!
This week we have excitingly started stocking artwork from the talented Illustrator and printmaker Emily Ketteringham.
After a career as a full time teacher, Emily fell in love with screen-printing one other wise ordinary Wednesday evening in 2006. Now happily an ex-teacher, Emily is undertaking an MA in Multidisciplinary Print at UWE. Emily expresses that ‘the coloured terraces and sweeping views of Bristol have supplied me with inspiration for the last 7 years’. I am sure many other artists in the Bristol area can relate to that. Emily’s prints and unique composition of space has caught Bristol’s attention up in Clifton Village. We still have a couple of framed pieces in stock alongside smaller prints and greeting cards.
Come take a peek for yourself!
